Serves 4 (serving size: about 4 stuffed shells)

Jumbo stuffed shells are your weeknight answer to homemade lasagna: Instead of endless layers, spoon a single vegetable mixture into each shell, and bake 12 minutes or until the cheese melts. Shells are also easy and fun to serve—you’ll know exactly how many equal a serving. This vegetarian version turns a French summer stew into a hearty filling, a great way to double up on vegetables in a pasta dish. Use leftover chickpeas to bulk up any summer vegetable or grain salad.


  • 16 uncooked jumbo pasta shells
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 cups diced eggplant
  • 1 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 3/4 cup diced zucchini
  • 3/4 cup chopped plum tomato
